SCADA remains relevant for industrial automation

Embedded workflow, engineering model support, and auto-discoverable assets are among the technologies keeping SCADA alive. Kevin Parker  12/07/2016 Placing computer power onto “edge devices” as near to production as possible is a goal hotly pursued in today’s industrial automation circles. What’s more, in just the past few years, copious amounts of process and operations data … Continue reading SCADA remains relevant for industrial automation

Choosing the right PLC panel

Programming logic controller (PLC) panels come in almost every shape and size with some of them being freestanding and others being wall-mounted and choosing the right solution for a particular application can be difficult. David Manney, L&S Electric 11/18/2016 Controlling equipment has always been of interest in industrial applications. Before modern-day computers came into existence, … Continue reading Choosing the right PLC panel

Inductive Factor 1 Sensors

Constant distance towards any metal Inductive Factor 1 sensors offer the great benefit of maintaining the same sensing distance towards all metals. Unlike standard sensors where this value changes, depending on the material. The benefits of Factor 1 sensors are obvious: This uniform distance offers outstanding flexibility in system conception and sensor installation. Contrary to … Continue reading Inductive Factor 1 Sensors
